Absolutely beautiful morning at Hyland. I stayed on the made snow loop for the hills. The snow was perfect. Hard packed deck, with enough moisture but not too much, so it felt fast. The tracks were very solid, and faster than the deck for downhills (ever so slightly glazed). Very few leaves anywhere, even the tracks. Ultra clean snow. The downhills held up really well despite snowplowing, and Boulder Ridge was no problem at top speed. Sunny and wonderful. Thanks to the crew!

We skied the Lake and Hill loops and the snowmaking loops, and everything was in really fantastic shape. The classic tracks were just in excellent shape.
There were a few leaves around on the Lake and Hill loops, but no worries. Many thanks to the great Hyland groomers!

Beautiful morning at Hyland. The skate deck was firm as always and the snow was a bit squeaky because of cool overnight temps. It’s been a great season, thank you groomers!

Nice skiing today at Hyland. The trails were all good and the weather was beautiful. There were some leaves in the classic tracks in a few places but the tracks were pretty deep in most places, I used them on some of the downhills and it didn't seem as scary as it sometimes is. There were plenty of people out there today enjoying the weather.

I skied the man made loop except Boulder Ridge. Freshly groomed. Base is very firm but not at all icy. Slow since it is cold, but it should speed up with the temperature.

Skied all the trails. Lake has some bark spots(probably hungry squirrels). Also a little dirt showing on Hill and North trail. Nature loop and artificial loops were great. Classic track is set throughout.

Skied at Hyland today noon until 2:30 pm. Skied the Lake loop and up through Frogtown and over to the North loop and back. All trails were groomed beautifully. Skied classical on crown skis and they kicked and glided supreme. Sun shining. Stellar day! Thanks Highland!
